A Virtual Run, Walk or Bike to provide shoes to kids in need

May 1-31, 2023

Easy, Fun and Rewarding

Race4EveryKid is a virtual movement challenge to raise funds to provide shoes to kids experiencing homelessness. Whether you decide to walk, run, cycle, or swim, every dollar you raise will provide joy and dignity to kids across the US. Soles4Souls makes it easy for you by providing everything you need to be successful, and we promise that you will have a lot of fun along the way.

More than 1.5 million kids in the U.S. experience homelessness.

Children who experience homelessness often lack basic necessities, including a good pair of shoes. 

No child should have to feel embarrassed, discouraged or left out simply because they lack something most of us take for granted.

At Soles4Souls, we’re on a mission to provide new athletic shoes to every homeless child in the U.S., so they can stay healthy and fully participate in school. Every kid deserves to feel the dignity and joy of a new pair of shoes.

You can be a champion for a child experiencing homelessness.

Help us reach our goal of providing over 12,000 kids with a new pair of shoes for the upcoming school year!

Here’s how it works:

On Your Marks

Register for the race, either as a Team Captain or an individual. It’s free and fun to participate!

Get Set

Use your personal race page to collect pledges for every mile you run, walk or cycle.


During the month of May, log your miles and raise funds. Your supporters donate right through your race page.

For a homeless kid, a new pair of shoes means dignity, education, and health.

For the kids we serve, shoes make all the difference.

New shoes means opportunity.

It means they get to attend that after school program they’ve been looking forward to, the choice to try out for the basketball team because they actually have shoes that fit their feet,  but most of all, it means they have the freedom to just be a kid — in the classroom and on the playground.
